I'll continue to break down the list into a few categories and limit myself to just 10 specific tasks. I've found this number to be challenging without being overwhelming. Also, I have family in town next week, so odds are I won't be able to check everything off my list…so, for that reason, I'll keep it a bit easy this time around. (Thank you and you're welcome, self.)
As for the past week, it was a good one—even though temperatures once again reached the 90s. If this is a preview for a rough summer ahead, I'd prefer to not think about it (or the cankles that will surely follow). I've also been struggling to find a new daily routine, now that Eisley naps only a couple times each week. It's hard to plan for the day (or week) now that I don't know exactly what free time I will have to work with. More on that later—as I would actually appreciate hearing how other parents have worked through the transition from napping to no-napping child.
Otherwise, I've felt pretty busy and (dare I say) accomplished. More than anything, I still want so much to figure out how to get at least one date night with Jay each month, but on Friday we at least enjoyed our last evening together as a family at Disneyland before our annual passes expire. I'm going to miss those adventures, but it just doesn't make sense to spend all that money on something like that, now that we will soon have a newborn (and have some other big expenses coming up). If we're still local when this next wee one is two-ish, maybe that would be a good time to splurge once again.
Now, if only Disneyland offered a delivery service for their popcorn…
In any case, here's a look at my list for the week ahead:
I hope everyone has a beautiful Monday!
